Holiday Harp Extravaganza

  • Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd 345 South 312th Street Federal Way, WA, 98003 United States (map)

The Harp Extravaganza is a fun harp ensemble experience in Federal Way, open to harpists of all ages and abilities and all types of harps. The program of holiday music is arranged for one to four harps; select whichever part you desire. Feel free to play one or two hands as ability allows. It is not necessary to play every song, just those you are comfortable with. Teachers are encouraged to bring their students and play along with them.

We will run through the program for an hour rehearsal from 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM, break for lunch, and perform the concert at 2:00 PM.
